1. Dewy skin
For those who want a simple V-day make-up idea that doesn’t require hours of preparation, this one’s for you. While skinimalism and the idea of natural, dewy skin isn’t a new thing, the “no make-up" makeup look will continue to be popular and it’s not going anywhere this season, according to Megumi.
To achieve that perfect dewy glow, opt for a light coverage foundation as the base to enhance your skin’s natural appearance. Make sure you also apply some highlighting powder along the cheekbones and on top of your forehead to accentuate your facial features.
